Martha Stewart Cake Challenge

It's time for a new weekly challenge over at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog.  Doesn't this cake look yummy?  I so want to eat it, lol.  Do you have a favorite cake place in your town?  There is a shop called, Sweet Surrender, and I love their cupcakes and cookies....a little too much if you know what I mean? lol.   I've been on a new life style plan for about 6 weeks, have lost some weight and all I can think about are those fabulous cupcakes and how I am going to treat myself just as soon as I reach my first goal, lol.  Isn't that awful?  Sad but true.  I'm so obsessed I used cupcakes in this post, I will on the next post and the post after....lol.  Just kidding, that is a coincidence.  Okay so on with my card.

I was inspired by the blue background with the pinking rickrack.  I used my MFT's pinking die-namic to cut the white edges and the red edges.  I am so excited that Laura has added die-namics to the store.  If you haven't ordered yet, please do so she can grab some more with each order.  I also used Vertical Greetings II, neither of these are in the store YET, but if you want them, make sure you email Laura and she will add them if she can.  I was also inspired by all those wonderful little flowers, so I used my WoodLand Park by October Afternoon dp and added a few extra flowers with the punches I had.  The image is CC design CupCake Emma, which is in the store, along with a lot of other cute CC designs and dies.  Go on over and check them out here.  I colored her with my copics and paper pieced her cupcake.  I love paper piecing, and hope to see that challenge back soon. 

So this is an inspiration photo picture, you can be inspired by anything you see and join in on the fun!  There is a chance to win some free stamps and who doesn't love that?  I know I do!!!  Speaking of free stamps, there is only a couple more days to get in on my blog candy, so if you love the set be sure to comment on that post, just click on the picture on the right hand side.

This sketch is from last years MFT's Sketch Challenges, MFTWSC8

I always say a cupcake isn't gonna kill ya! Here's to reach your first goal and having that delicious icing meet your tongue:)
Love the bright cheery colors of this design and the paper piecing looks fantastic.

Not sure you could have gotten any closer to the inspiration! Your card truly looks like it is a companion piece to the cake.
